Did a new run from 5.3:

[   35.971972] Call trace:
[   35.974391]  drm_sched_increase_karma+0x5c/0xf0	ffff000010667f38	FFFF000010667F94	drivers/gpu/drm/scheduler/sched_main.c:335


The crashing line is :
                                if (bad->s_fence->scheduled.context ==
                                    entity->fence_context) {

Doesn't seem related to guilty job.
